The article analyses emerging collective identity formations in an "invisible" minority ethnic group. It is based upon focus groups and in-depth interviews with Irish people in Sheffield. The concept of community is central to an Irish collective identity, but is negotiated in a multiplicity of ways. Irish collective identity has been shaped by shared experiences of non-recognition and stereotyping.
